Printing costs alone sum up to a few thousand dollars per year
According to the old and new agreements in the planning and construction industry, the ancillary costs in the case of printing and paper costs must be invoiced according to itemization, unless a flat-rate agreement has been made in the course of placing the job. These are the costs of the primary level, which often end up in the planners’ hands. Do not underestimate the monetary value of construction management documentation in this field but instead learn how to manage them! Even with medium-sized projects, as the short sample calculation from the -IWW News Agency- shows, it involves several thousand dollars.
For printing costs and reproductions, a middle-sized planning office charged the client a total of 792 plans at 3.96 dollars each (= 3,140 dollars).
Multiply the calculated value of your construction project related prints by the number of your jobs in order to get an approximate picture of how much savings potential is available in the area of document printing & management regarding your own business! Aren´t we talking about an amount of money which would be nice to access for other reasons than spending it on project prints?
Experience has also shown us that this problem has far-reaching management consequences.
Parts of the usable floor area are uneconomically wasted on storing project folders in library-like structures and occupy so much space that involuntary relocations of entire planning offices and the whole team are the consequence! Aren´t we able to manage other solutions and learn from the past?
During the hiring, a few new employees, the resource -space- and thus the generation of space for workplaces played a decisive role. Architectural and planning offices must rent new premises in order to accommodate their employees.
This entails costs for relocation, work stoppages and also increasing rental obligations, only to give more space to the already existing chaos of documents. Do you need a management tool for this chaos? Project relevant documents and the huge amount of information bundled in here can be avoided by using a time efficient cloud-based, construction and document management software.
If you enter your own office today, what’s the first thing you notice? Look around you! Isn’t it the printers, plotters, fax machines, scanners and the result of their use? Shelves full of folders, labeled by year, project name, year-end closing? Protocols, floor plans, planning documents, inventories, defect reports, contract documents and much more… In general, a chaotic work environment! We want to help you to reduce this ballast by providing the best construction management software with PlanRadar. Document management, your team projects, and all contractors united in one mobile software solution!

Photos, text and voice recordings, as well as the assignment of any defects to a contractor, are possible without detours in an online document.

Construction document control software – back then and now
Think back for a moment. How often has the paper form or a certain document led to confusion at all levels of information retrieval within a project? Daily!
What is the final state? Where do we continue to work? What changes and solutions still have to be made, who has the printout that I have to take with me for the project presentation today, and finally:
“Oh no! It’s not the right plan, there’s something missing. I’ll have to improvise.”
Years of experience have shown us that paper is often overestimated as a mobile medium and often ends up accidentally in the garbage, but until then it has already caused enormous costs regardless of its function as a general floor plan or superior document. You will never again have to confuse the plan status and justify yourself for missing additions. Save toner and paper by using a software solution that optimizes every single process during your job! It´s time for you and your team to change your habits regarding document gradation.
